Woodchips: Keeping your dry cows dry

Woodchips: Keeping your dry cows dry

Walkout yards can get very muddy, they are often unusable because of all the mud. So what can you do?

Johan Kets, farmer in the Netherlands, is putting 25 cm of wood chips into the walkout area to keep his dry cows dry.
And it works: they all rest. The picture above is from two weeks after the start, in the middle of the Dutch winter. Only downside: the cows are a little bit more dirty...

Do you have any experience with wood chips? Any recommendations? Let us know!
